Scientists Successfully Implant Lungs into Fish
Scientists have successfully created a goldfish that is capable of breathing atmospheric air. Using advanced microsurgery techniques, researchers at the New South Wales Veterinary Institute implanted a pair of frog lungs into the fish, which survived out of water for 2 hours.
The lungs were connected to the respiratory surface that were naturally found in the gills. The fish was able to conduct gas exchange through the lungs instead of the gills, which allowed it to breath in a terrestrial environment. A very humid chamber was constructed for the goldfish so that it did not dehydrate.

SCIENCE ISN’T ABOUT WHY IT’S ABOUT WHY NOT

i don’t think you guys understand how important this is if we’re able to put lungs in fish it means we may be able to put gills in humans which means we’re one step closer to becoming mermaids


HOLD THE TELEPHONE SON - ARE YOU TELLING ME THAT IN MY LIFETIME THERE IS EVEN A SLIGHT POSSIBILITY I MAY BE ABLE TO BREATHE UNDERWATER? I WILL SELL MY FUCKING SOUL FOR THIS I DON’T THINK YOU UNDERSTAND. IF TUMBLR IS FUCKING WITH ME IS2G

I can’t help but feel that nobody actually took the time to click the link…
